YOUR PORTFOLIO PARTNER

Portco Partners has been serving Private Equity firms and their portfolio companies for over 20 years. Simply put, we work with PE firms to accelerate and maximize their value.

We view our team as bringing the “execution muscle” to your portfolio companies. In addition to our experienced staff, our wide network of associates have a successful track record with PE backed companies so we can provide the right resource at the right time. We focus primarily on companies in transition as all portfolio companies are at various points of their investment cycle. Portco Partners has expertise with Pre / Post Merger Integration, Year One Transitions, Carve Outs, Strategic Initiatives, M&A, and Restructuring.

SERVICES

PMO Leadership or Project Support

Inhouse projects can be tricky. Company resources often lack the time or experience required to lead certain projects or strategic initiatives.  Our team has been successful delivering these projects in all areas of the business including restructuring, cash flow optimization and due diligence support. We manage team formation, assignment of responsibilities, executing deliverables and reporting progress straight through final delivery.

Interim Management (CEO, CRO, CFO, COO, CHRO)

All portfolio companies experience change to their organizational structure during their lifecycle. Often additional time is needed to find the proper long-term resource. Our team will fill that gap, not as a placeholder but as an interim leader progressing the business forward while working with the company to get a permanent resource hired and quickly up to speed in their new role.

Our recruiting team focuses exclusively on delivering senior executives that will be successful in your environment. We work with both the PE Operating team as well as the company management to define the role, conduct a proper search, filter and qualify the candidates and then assist on-boarding the new resource.
